PSV Eindhoven is maintaining optimism in their pursuit of Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite.
Everton acquired Branthwaite from Carlisle United in 2020 for a transfer fee of 1.1 million euros.
The Dutch giants had the pleasure of having Branthwaite on loan last season, during which he made a significant impact. Branthwaite featured in 27 matches for PSV and found the back of the net twice.
Under the guidance of coach Ruud van Nistelrooy, the young centre-back demonstrated immense potential. However, PSV did not have an option to secure his services permanently at the time.
According to the Liverpool Echo, discussions are currently underway between the two clubs regarding a potential permanent deal for Branthwaite.
PSV remains hopeful of reaching an agreement for the 21-year-old, but Everton is reluctant to part ways with the talented defender.
